These machines use a source that is CO2 powered, that is “activated” with physical processes. Once enabled, the source of CO2 is directed through a system of mirrors in the laser head, and, with the help of compressed air, channeled into a beam small which is what size the material.
The power, controlled by the operator of the source CO2 and the pressure of the compressed air favor the cutting of very thin material but thick (up to a few cm depending on the power of the machine).
